ance with the desires of the promotors

fact that Third street is still in the 
hands of the contractors.) 

Mr. L. B. French and Mr. John Pow¬ 
ers addressed the board in regard to 
an elect/ic railroad which they propose 
to build in th£ city of Glendale. 

The city attorney mad$ an oral re¬ 
port on the convention of sixth class 
cities held in I.os Angeles June 20th 
to consider the Good Roads movement. 
The points he reported as agreed upon 
were the following: The commission 
ha3 no jurisdiction over any portion 
of proposed boulevards that will be 
within incorporated cities; that money 
voted for a bond issue cannot be used 
within said corporate limits, and It ap¬ 
peared to be the sense of the conven¬ 
tion that a bond election should not 
he held previous to the general elec¬ 
tion in November. 

The city engineer was instructed to 

prepare an estimate of cost of improv¬ 
ing Orange Grove avenue from Glen¬ 
dale avenue jo Adams street unde! 
specifications No. 3. 


The meeting called by the trustees 
of the city of Alhambra to confer with 
the trustees of other sixth class cities 
in regard to the Good Roads movement 
and its bearing on the small municipal¬ 
ities, was held in Los Angeles last 
Saturday. City Attorney Metcalf and 
Trustees Watson and Grant were in 
attendance from Glendale. The High¬ 
way commission consists of three 
members—Messrs. Daggett, Blxby and 

Mr. Daggett was present at the 
meeting and made a report outlining 
the work so far as it has progressed, 
and stating what it was intended to ac¬ 
complish. Then followed a roll call of 
the cities represented. A large ma;j 
of the county^ was exhibited, showing 
the highways proposed. The roads will 
naturally radiate from Los Auge’es as 
a center. One will cross the county 
from Monrovia, or near there, to Long 
Beach. The San Fernando road will 
be another and probably another ex¬ 
tending northvavi!- will- hr tHrough 
Hollywood and Cahuenga Pass, along 
the route of the old “Camino del Rev.” 
One will enter the county rear Fc- 
mona, following the line of the foot¬ 
hills, passing through Pasrdei'i a r d 
G’endaie and on to the ocean. In 
Glendale the route favored at present 
Is Sixth' street, but the exact route 
through here is a detail to be worked 
out later. While the width of the ded¬ 
icated road? will be not less than sixty 
and probably in many cases 100 feet, 
the actual roadway for team work is 
to be only about 18 feet, it being the 
opinion of experts that a narrow road 
way, constructed for permanent use ts 
r referable to the greater spread of ir 
ferior work over a greater 8"rfrce, n^d 
costs much less to keep in repair. Tint 
portion of the highways within incor¬ 
porated cities wi l be entirely under 
the -ontrol of the mubicipaMtlea w^*cb 
will receive rone or the roorey raised 
by the bond issue. A majority of the 
delegate present favored a resolution 
offered by Mr. Pridham, of South Pasa¬ 
dena. declaring in favor of postponing 
the election for bonds until after the 
November elections so that the people 
may have a better chance to inform 
themselves, and also that the com¬ 
plexion of the board of sui ervisors 
who will, with the commission, have 
the control of the three million dollar 
fund, is made known. 

Commisisoner Daggett, however, fa¬ 
vored the calling of the election at 
an early date, probably in August. 

The highway commissioners are en¬ 
trusted with full power in all matters 
conected with the work, subject only 
to the overseeing of the supervisors 
who will have to approve the bills. 

Steps were taken to form a perma¬ 
nent organization of sixth class cities, 
and the meeting adjourned. 


The coming summer finds the Glen¬ 
dale library particularly well equipped 
with desirable reading matter, consist¬ 
ing of a new traveling library and a 
second purchase of books by the li¬ 
brary board, In both of which Will be 
found books catering to the tafifes of 
all classes. A fine collection of new

C. Daole has sold his interest In the

he was interested with Mr. Gllhousen.

contracting business. 

club. A list of this will be given later. 

All new books are now being prepared 
by the librarian for circulation, and are 
being placed on the shelves each 
library dcy. 

Among the books of the traveling 
library are fifty volumes, especially 
cnosen by the librarian because of 
their being late and interesting. Alf 
classes may be suited, in departments 
of ethics, religion, science, social 
science, useful arts, fine arts, poetry, 
fiction, travel, history and biography. 

At this vacation season those who are 
fond of travel will find “Across Asia 
on a Bicycle” a bock full of novelty 
and adventure. “In the Heart of the 
Pi'**vas,” !>jr Msu*cr. Hrtchings. 

the "father of Yosemlte,” Is most in¬ 
teresting in its anecdotes, descriptions 
and reminiscences. “London Films.” 
by cur own American author, William 
Dean Kowell3, so admirably fitted to 
write of England, gives a ceries of 
charming impressions of London. 

Of course fiction is- more called for 
than anything else, and good fiction 
must te presented. Under this head 
is found “If Youth But Knew," by that 
popular English literary couple, Agues 
and Egerton Castle; “Coniston," by 
Winston Churchill; “Emma." by Jane 
Austen; "A Sword of the Old Fron¬ 
tier," by Randall Parish; "The Awak¬ 
ening of Helen Richie," by Margaret 
De and; “Eupenle Crandet,” by 
Honore de Balzac; “Doctor Claudius," 
by Francis Marion Crawford: “The 
Princess Alive," by Richard Harding 

Those who desire a good laugh will 
find “Editorial Wild Oats." by Mark 
Twain, permeated with that popular 
author's mirth-provoking peculiarity. 

Particular attention has been be¬ 
stowed upon the selection of books for 
young people, as Glendale students are 
being taught by the efficient teachers 
in the public schools how and what 
to read, and the call made by them j 
for plenty of reading matter of thsXwh 
right Hort is commendable and grati-ls”' 
fying. SECRETARY*^ 


Mr. LeGrand, station agent at Fourth 
street and the boulevard, reports that 
both passenger and freight business 
have doubled there as compared with 
a year ago. 

See those golden brown Oxfords foJ 
ladies at Glendale Shoe Store. They 
are beauties. 


Mrs. Lon D. Gates, a young woman 
aged about 19 or 20. died last Sunday 
at I ankershim under circumstances 
which led to an investigation by Cor¬ 
oner Hartwell at Glendale last Mon¬ 
day afternoon, the body having been 
brought to the Pulliam undertaking 

Mrs. Gates and her husband, with 
a child eleven months old, were living 
on the ranch of Dr. Hagan, near Lan- 
kershim. Becoming ill she went to 
l os Angeles to consult with Dr. Hagan 
about her condition on Tuesday of last 

week, accompanied* by a lady friend. 
The lady who accompanied Mrs. Gates 
testified before the coroner, but could 
give little positive evidence. Her tes¬ 
timony was to the effect, however, that 
her friend came away from Dr. 
Hagan’s office with a card evidently in 
the doctor s handwriting containing the 
address of Mrs. Smith, on Sunset 
boulevard. Mrs. Gates then went to 
Mrs. Smith and on the return home 
told her friend that she had been given 
a “blacw pill": what else was given 
her or what treatment she received 
at the hands of Mrs. Smith is un¬ 
known. That night she was taken 
seriously 111. As son as he could do 
so, her husband caught Dr. Hagan on 
the telephone and asked his advice, 
being assured that the illness was *mly 
temporary and not Berious. This t*yas 
on Wednesday The husband testified 
that he telephoned Dr*. “ Ha gat) OiT-" 
Thursday and Friday, and on Satur¬ 
day, when the case had become des¬ 
perate. Dr. Hagan came out. to see 
her. In the meantime, however, the 
husband had called in Dr. Thompson 
of Burbank, who seems to have 
diagnosed the case correctly and to 
have done everything possible, but 
was unable to check the high fever 
which was consuming the patient, who 
died at 8 a. m. Sunday. The Jury, in 
the absence of more positive testi¬ 
mony. could only render a verdict 
censuring Dr. Hagan and Mrs. Smith, 
"nding that the deceased had come to 
her death from blood poisoning, evi¬ 
dently the result of an attempted oper¬ 
ation for abortion. 

Evangelists Hoare and Adams, con¬ 
ducting the Gospel meetings ut the 
’arge tent, corner Fourth and Ken¬ 
wood streets, report a continued inter¬ 
est and full attendance. 

They earnestly invite the people of 
Glendale to these meetings, as they, 
afford a rare opportunity for investiga¬ 
tion and study of tne sublime themes 
pertaining to eteinal life. During the 
east week most important subjects 
have been considered, as “The second 
coming of Christ, near, even at the- 
doors," “Gospel Meanig of the Age « 0 f 
Inventions," “Origin and Destiny of* 
3atan," etc. 

On Saturday evening the subject, 
"Man, is he mortal or immortal, or 
does he possess by nature a never- 
dying soul":‘ and on Sunday evening 
the “Reward and F*uture State of the 
leked” will be presented. The«4atter 
dy gives a Bible answer to the ques- 
"" whether the wicked are doomed 
o suffer eternal fire in hell. In every 
subject Christ and His gospel is ex¬ 
alted. . 

The meetings will be continued 
every evening next week. 

The new tea and coffee store in the 
Watson Block, corner Fourth and 
Glendale avenue, is now ready for 
business. A full line of teas and 
coffees, spices and extracts; also 
china, glassware and house furnish¬ 
ings. Punch bowl and glasses for

If California should ever be fortun¬ 
ate enough to get a man of the type 
of Gov. Hughes in the governor’s 
chair, the race-track evil would soon 
be a thing of the past in this s*ate. 
Perhaps no other state in the Uuion

statesmen and send them to Washing¬ 
ton to represent us, or put one occa¬ 
sionally at the head of the state.

The California Voice publishes as a 
fact the following: 

“A quantity of whiskey was seized 
in Newton, Mass. The receipt was 
found in the possession of the dealer 
and read thus: ‘Ten gallons of kero¬ 
sene, three pounds of potash, one 
ounce of strychnine mixed with soft 
water. If you want gin, add “quan¬ 
tum sufficia” of oil of juniper.’ " 

The Hour of the Suffragette 

Sunday last was a great day in 
London. The suffragettes captured 
the city. The dispatches inform us 
that half a million people assembled 
about Hyde Park “while the whole 
city was in a ferment” for three 
hours. Ambulances were kept busy 
dealing with cases of fainting and 
other minor troubles. Twenty speakers 
harangued the crowd about the 
“rights of woman” and the necessity 
of forcing parliament to enact legis¬ 
lation favorable to their cause. 

Probably in no other city in the

We refuse to swallow it. 

The San Fernando Press is agitat¬ 
ing the question of incorporating 
that town. We can assure our neigh¬ 
bor up the vallev that if it has any 
ambition to grow and become a place 
which will become attractive to the 
home seeker, incorporation is abso¬ 
lutely essential to the accomplish¬ 
ment of that tesult. Glendale is an 
object lesson in this respect. The 
.—things we have accomplished in the 
last two years were only made possible 
by the fact of our having a local gov¬ 
ernment which made up for that lack 
of co-operation for the general wel¬ 
fare which is natural to all unorgan¬ 
ized communities. Incorporate and 
grow; remain unorganized and stag¬ 
nate. J 

Abolish the Parks 

Some of the citizens of Los Ange¬ 
les are disposed to complain because 
the public parks are being used by 
suicides as places in which to make 
their final exit. The unfortunates 
tread on the grass, tear up the shrub¬ 
bery and muss up the water iu the 

Their actions, of course, are very 
inconsiderate, but it may be put down 
to the credit of the successful per¬ 
former that he never does it the sec¬ 
ond time. Ths discouraging thing 
about it is the very evident encour¬ 
agement of immorality by the public 
parks. Being used so often by people 
determined to “shuffle off this mortal 
coil,” it certainly follows that they 
are responsible for an increase in the 
number of suicides. This being ad¬ 
mitted, the remedy suggests itself to 
the humanitarian statesman at once, 
abolish the parks! 

Gov. Hughes of New York is an¬ 
other specimen of the public official 
who is not bound by precedent, but 
goes right ahead and does things. 
His triumphant victory over the race 
track ring in New York, backed up 
as it was by influential members of 
his own political party, is one of the 
best examples of the possibilities for 
good possessed by a public official, 
of which we h%ve ever known. A 
weaker man would long ago have de 
dared the thing now accomplished to 

world could such a demonstration 
have taken place. Every Sunday in 
London, Hyde Park and Regents 
Park are given over to “reformers” 
of every description. One may hear 
the king and parliament den uinced 
in the bitterest terms while the omni¬ 
present “Bobby” listens with other 
spectators to their woeful tale and 
lets them talk. The rule, however, 
is that there shall be no processions 
during the regular hours of church 

It Is very Improbable that 'this rule 
was enforced last Sunday. No merely 
man made law is sufficient to deter a 
woman from doing what she con¬ 
siders to be her duty to society. We 
have not heard that King Edward is 
trembling on his throne, but it looks 
very much to an observer at a dis¬ 
tance as if pirliament would h ive to 
do something. The women of London, 
and indeed, of England, are very 
much in earnest in this matter, and 
probably the only way to convince 
them that they are no better law 
makers or administrators than men, 
is to let them experiment at least a 
little. The experiment will doubtless 
cost a good deal, but real knowledge 
is worth paying for. 

Let us lee.van it Byron who wrote: 

“Oh woman. In your h«mrs of «?****. 
Uncertain, coy and hard to please. 

We loee yon well: bnt yet. bnl yet. 
Preserve us from the snffrarette!” 

Taft and Sherman 

The work of the Republican Na¬ 
tional Convention in Chicago last 
week was well done. As far as the 
naming of the candidate for presi¬ 
dent was concerned, it was merely a 
ratification meeting, for the Taft 
boom had grown to overwhelming 
proportions. An effort was made by 
a body of Rooseveltians to stampede 
the convention by a prolonged out¬ 
burst of enthusiasm over the mention 
of the name of the president, but it 
failed to work; the delegates would 
not catch fire The admirers of 
Roosevelt are as numerous as ever 
and as sincere, but they have had 
ample time for the serious considera¬ 
tion of the matter and are evidently 
convinced that he is not the only man 
possessing the earnest intention and 
the force necessary to carry out his 
policies. He has blazed the way, he 
has given the world an object lesson

of inestimable value in showing the 
possibilities for good which lie in the 
hands of a president who has a sin¬ 
cere desire to work reform in the 
many departmentsof public life. The 
highest office in the gift of our people 
has been filled by numerous good men 
in the past; men whose patriotism is 
unquestioned bv any intelligent citi¬ 
zen. But they have been wedded too 
closely to hoary precedent and were 
unable to see their way to the heart 
of a question through the mass of red 
tape surrounding it. TheodoreRoose- j 
velt does not need to occupy the pres- j 
idential chair to enable him to con¬ 
tinue to be an immense power for 
good in the life of the nation. 

The country is to be congratulated 
upon the nomination of William How¬ 
ard Taft. Perhaps never before in 
our history has a man been nominated 
for that high office who, by reason of 
his training from childhood and the 
rare experience of his mature years 
in public life, has possessed in such 
an eminent degree the necessary 

qualifications for the performance of 
the duties of the office. We do not 
mean that he is the greatest man who 
has ever been nominated for or filled 
the position; we mean that .as far as 
we can judge by his record and his- 
life up to this time, he seems better 
qualified for the place than did any 
candidate whom we can recall, at the 
time he was nominated. The ques¬ 
tion of his, place in history will be de¬ 
termined by future events; that his¬ 
tory will write him down as the suc¬ 
cessor of Theodore Roosevelt,* we do 
not for an instant doubt. Not only- 
physically, but intellectually and in 
the record of service performed, any 
opposition- candidate who can > be 
brought out against him will be 
dwarfed by comparison. 

Of the candidate for vice-presideftt, 
Mr. Sherman, it is only necessary to 
quote at this time the words of a cor¬ 
respondent of the daily press: “He 
has been in* public life a good many 
years, and he is as poor a man now- 
as whei»*h« entered congress. ”

the noise and the disorder year after

And the next day It snowed. 

Everybody knows that the moon Is 
responsible for the weather; when the 
moon gets full look out for trouble. 
Wh$n the moon has a lop-sided I don’t- 
care expression as it hangs in the 
western sky just In the beginning of 
one of its useful spells, you may know 
that there Is going to be rain—or that 
hete isn’t, we have forgotten which. 
People who really know something 
about the Influence of the moon upon 
he wetther are called moonatlcs, to 
iistinguish them from the people who 
know so much else that other people 
loVt. that they are kept In solitary

Wo never fceMeved in the idea that 
joed results could be obtained by 
planting things In the moon, still there 
may be something in It; these hew and 
progressive ideas should not be treated 
lightly until you have tried them. If 
you will slip pver toward the east some 
evening just a$ the mood ‘comes up 
out of the earth where you can stand 
on your toes and reach It, to 
drop some seed in, please do so 
and report to us at once. The 
weather in I os Angeles and some other 
world centers is managed by a bureau. 
The idea that it is kept in a bureau 
is a mistake; there are other things

them might be mentioned the “Fore¬

is somewhat off on other things also, 
but let that pass. It is a subject not 
to be treated with levity, so we turn 
it over to the agricultural editor, who 
keeps notes In abook, plants potatoes

We have reached the latter days of 
June without one unpleasantly warm 
day since last summer. Indeed, there 
has been a tendency to complain of -* 
an “unusually cold spring and early 
summer,” and such has been the case. 

In the last week of May there was a 
slight touch of frost on the low-lying 
valley lands, but not sufficient to do 
any injury. The fegs usually prevalent 
at t hi - 9e~"nn still continue to dHft in 
'rom the cceati at night and overcast 
the sun for an hour or two in the early 
morning. Vegetation is as a conse¬ 
quence more backward than usual and 
Truit Is not ripening quite as early, 
but promises a good crop. 

This week the weather has become 
warmer, particularly in the early part 
of the day before the ocean breeze be¬ 
gins to move. It is now the season 
of the year when our really warm 
weather comes on. The thermometer Is 
liable to register as high as 90 degrees 
,at any time for two or three days in 
succession, but It is to be borne in 
mind that thl3 is a dry heat and that 
it does not prevail during the night. 
Tomatoes, green corn, squashes, cu- s 
cumbers, etc., are coming ihto market" 7 
slowly, with peaches, apricots and all 
kinds of berries, but not yet in quan¬ 
tities for sufficient home consumption, 
except as to berries.

The approaching Solar eclipse af¬ 
fords a seasonable oportunity for a 
brief consideration of these interesting 
phenomena. And in order to obtain a 
clear conception of what occurs in an 
eclipse, let us form an imaginary pic 
ture of the sun, the earth and the 
moon in their several positions in the 
Solar System. The earth travels round 
the sun at an average distance from 
that luminary of ninety-three million 
miles, in a slightly elliptical orbit 
which takes us( about three million 
miles nearer to the central orb in De¬ 
cember than in June. The moon cir 
_;les round the earth at an average dis 
_ance of 240,000 miles from the latter 
also in an elliptical orbit, which, oi 
course, brings her nearer to us at some 
times than at others. And as the path 
of the earth and that of the moon 
are very nearly in the same plane, it 
follows that wheh the moon passes that 
part of its orbit situated between the 
earth and the sun, it must frequently 
interpose its dark body between us 
and our source of light. This can only 
occur at new moon, and produces ar 
eclipse of the subt Similarly, when 
the moon passeg: that part of its orbii 
lying directly away from the sun, on 
the other side of the earth, it musi 
frequently pass into, and through the 
shadow of the latter. This shadow 
s a vast cone of darkness streaming 
out behind the earth, about 857,00< 
miles. And as the moon is little more 
than one-fourth that distance from th« 
earth, it has, in an eclipse, sometimes 
to pass through considerable space in 
obscuration. This can only occur at 
full moon, and produces a lunar 

If the sun, the earth and the moon 
were in exactly the same plane, and 
the two latter moved in exactly circu¬ 
lar orbits, there would be a total 
eclipse of both the sun and mco i every 
month at regular Intervals. Put the 
inclination of the orbit of the moon to 
that of the earth causes the moon 
most frequently to pass either above 
or below the sun. and above or below 
the earth’s shadow on their respective 
sides <5f its orbit. It usually happens 
that only a portion of the surface of 
the sun is obscured In a Sola:* eclipse 
this is termed a partial eclipse. If. 
however, the moon crosses the sun in 
such a manner that its center passes 
over, or very near to, the center of the 
sun. then the eclipse assumes one or 
other of two verjr retaarkab'e for^s 
In one case the entire surface of the 
sun Is obscured, making a total eclipse. 
This phenomenon is rare, and the 
apparent diameter of the moon being 
only slightly larger than that of the 
sun, the duration of totality is very 
short; the movement of the moon will, 
in a few minuteB, enable a margin of 
the sun to reappear. In the other 
case, however, even though the center 
of the moon passes exactly over the 
center of the sun, the eclipse will not 
be total, as a beautiful ring of the 
sun’s disc will be visible around the 
dark edge of the moon. The effect may 
be roughly Illustrated by placing a half 
dollar squarely in the center of a twen- 
ty-dollar gold piece. This is termed 
in annular eclipse, from the Latin 
wdrd "annulus”—a ring. These varie 
ties of eclipse result from the varia¬ 
tions In distance and eccentricity of 
orbits before referred to, which con¬ 
stantly fluctuate within certain limits, 
and make thd apparent sixe of the 
moon, sometimes a little smaller and 
sometimes a little larger than that of 
the sun. *" 

The Solar eclipse, which will occur 
next Sunday morning, is one of the 

la3t mentioned variety, an annular 
! eclipse. But the most interesting 
.phase of it will only be visible, in this 
country, in a circumscribed area, in 
the peninsula of Florida, near the city 
of Tampa. And being of somewhat 
rare occurrence, doubtless many- ob¬ 
servers will assemble there to witness 
it. The eclipse will, however, be vis¬ 
ible as a partial eclipse all over the 
United States. And as the sun will 
be everywhere high in the sky at the 
time, and very favorably situated for 
the purpose, a good opportunity will 
be afforded everyone to make an inter 
esting astronomical observation, re¬ 
quiring no special ability, and no other 
apparatus than a piece of smoked or 
colored glass. 

in Los Angeles county the eclipse 
will commence at G:17 a. m. and end 
«t 8:17 a. m., and at its greatest ex¬ 
tent three-fifths (more than half) of 
the sun's disc will be obscured. This 
is a greater extent of obscuration than 
can be seen anywhere on this coast, 
except at San Diego, where it will be 
the same. At San Francisco only two- 
fifths will be obscured, and at Victoria, 
B. C., only one-tenth. 

Let us hope the sky will he clear, 
for if it is cloudy we shall only be 
aware of the eclipse by the semi-twi¬ 
light which will prevail. 

In contemplation of this sublime 
manifestation of the mighty forces of 
nature, let us remember the marvel 
of human achievement by which pre¬ 
dictions of such precision are accom¬ 
plished. No longer are such phenomena 
regarded a.j of sinister omen to the 
human race, as in the olden time. 

The movements of the heavenly 
bodies go on silently, continually and 
unobtrusively. Indeed this is a char¬ 
acteristic of all the grand operations 
of Latere. Sometimes, however, as in 
tue case of an eclipse of the sun, these 
operations are so conspicuous that 
they inevitably attract our attention. 
And ini these enlightened tiiqes we 
recognize in the eclipse the operatloL 
the eternal law of the Mighty Ruler 
of the unherse. Well might the poet 
King of the starry orbs around us— 

"In reason s ear they alt rejoice 
And utter forth a glorious voice; 

For ever singing, as they shine, 
The hand that made us Is divine." 


Only two heard of this week, but 
one of them counts for several. Last 
Tuesday near noon as the Glendale 
bus was coming up from the depot 
and had JuBt turned into Glendale ave¬ 
nue at Fourth street, a tug came loose 
or broke, which probably led to the 
dropplngi of the neckyoke, for the 
tongue fell down, and when the horses 
began to run it was soon snapped off. 
Just above the livery stable the driver 
and the one passenger jumped out, 
and the horses dashed up the street, 
turning the corner sharply to the right 
at Third street. Here the team and 
the vehicle parted company, the latter 
turning turtle at the northeast corner 
of the two streets, while the horses 
continued around the block, circled 
back to the rear of the livery stable 
and were captured. The driver, Harry 
Bidwell, received a severe ctft in the 
knee and was otherwise bruised. The 
one iiassenger, a commercial traveler, 
escaped without injury. It was very 
fortunate that the accident occurred at 
a time of day when there are but few 
passengers. Team and driver were 
laid up for repairs until Thursday, 
when trips were resumed. 

One of Shaver Bros, delivery,teams 
ran away last Monday afternoon while 
delivering goods in the Rlverdale tract. 
They made a lively dash along the 

San Fernando road and were captured 
after considerable difficulty by Fred 
Volkert. No damage resulted, al¬ 
though the wagon was loaded with an 
assortment of goods, a case of black¬ 
berries on the driver's seat not being 


It was the privilege of the writer to 
attend the annual banquet of the Board 
of Trade at Hollywood Thursday even¬ 
ing of last week. This yearly banquet 
has become quite an important event 
in our flourishing sister city and is 
one of the many means adopted by 
the enterprising members of the or¬ 
ganization to advertise their many at 
tractions and to get In closer touch 
with their own people and their neigh¬ 
bors. There were about 300 members 
and guests present in the dining room 
of the Hotel Hollywood at 8:30, when 
the banqueting begun. A fine orches¬ 
tra furnished excellent music through¬ 
out the evening, and in addition to this 
a male quartette sang several songs, 
which won encores, and Mrs, John¬ 
ston Bishop sang with fine feeling in 
her splendid style, “California.” and 
for an encore gave her native state 
song, “Ohio." The very efficient pres¬ 
ident of the Board of Trade, Mr. Ed¬ 
ward Winterer, acted as toastippster, 
and gave an interesting account of the 
work accomplished by the Board of 
Trade for Hollywood. Mr. G. H. Stew¬ 
art. president of the Los Angeles 
Chamber of Commerce, spoke In a very 
happy vein of the growth of the'two 
cities and of the great future of South¬
